Memories of Lago Mar: Volume I – Debbie Banks Remembers

I remember when I was a little girl and my grandfather (Sidney Banks, First Generation), whom I loved dearly, used to take me, all dressed up, to the Sunday Night Buffet Dinner in the dining room. Men were always in suit jackets and there was always a band playing. I even remember the singer, Lee Carroll, who I thought was absolutely gorgeous, singing our favorite songs if we asked. Lots of our guests and members would dance and so would my brother Lee and I!  Every single table would ...

2015 FLIBS and New Menu

Hi! What an exciting week we have had here at the resort! Monday ended the 56th International Boat Show and it was absolutely incredible. The weather was great over the weekend and there was a lot of energy in our town. Chris and I spent most of the day on Saturday at the show and had a blast. It was very easy to see how great the economy is doing! There were so many floating docks with gorgeous boats of every size. We saw many ...

Delicious New Menu Arriving at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall weather. We certainly are here at the resort. The skies have been crystal clear, with daytime temperatures averaging 75 degrees, and the local surfers have been enjoying the large waves rolling in. On Thursday we had a tasting of Chef Phil’s new lunch menu and it was amazing! The first dish we tried was a salad of romaine lettuce with candied pecans, dried apricots and pomegranates topped with a beautiful piece of ...

The very elegant party was hosted by a family who are members of Lago Mar, and they live right around the corner in a beautiful home on the inlet.

Dine Out Lauderdale

Hi! Monday night I went to 15th Street Fisheries for dinner and enjoyed "Dine Out Lauderdale”, which is a six-week celebration of our top restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. There are more than 35 restaurants participating by offering specially-created, three course menus at a $35 fixed price. I absolutely love 15th Street Fisheries, upstairs and downstairs, so I decided to go there. If Chris and I take the kids out with us we usually sit downstairs because it is more casual and ...

Demi’s Healthy Summer

Hi! I’m writing to you because I really want to share the story of my past summer and the lifestyle changes I have made. Don’t get me wrong, my life was great before, but now I feel ten times better about myself and just in general. What I did was simple. I woke up one day after a tennis tournament, which I lost earlier than I probably should have due to lack of endurance and not being in the best ...

It was so cute that my dad came to watch her play 6 matches, 5 of which she won. I did hear that our guests and members had a nice weekend at the resort. The weather was pretty nice so most were enjoying the pools and beach, not to ...

Getting Body Wrapped at the Spa

Hi! I have to tell you about the spa treatment I received last week at the resort! It was a body treatment, which consisted of a scrub, massage and wrap. There were a few to choose from but since I am so interested in all that is anti-aging I decided to try the Lumafirm. I will go through some of the highlights of my fabulous treatment with you. The first step was applying a body elixir made up of sorghum, dactyl ...
